No matter what your life looks like,
you have stories that deserve to be told.
Scrapbooking the stories of your life are:
a radical act of self-care,
a way to state your existence,
and a simple, creative way to show up for yourself.
You are the author of your own adventures — even when those adventures take place in the comfort of your own home.
Every story is valid, and we’re here to help you tell the ones most important to you.
The Awesome Ladies Project’s Feminist Scrapbook School is the only place on the planet to teach you how to scrapbook & document your life through an anti-patriarchy, anti-capitalist, anti-white supremacy lens.
Have you ever thought about scrapbooking
but haven’t found a way that clicked for you?
Scrapbooking your story is a badass and empowering form of documenting your life.
One where you choose the rules, which stories to tell, and how you want to tell them.
Feminist Scrapbook School is the leading place to learn how to scrapbook your own stories.
It’s scrapbooking for people like YOU.
Feminist Scrapbook School is packed with in-depth, practical courses, prompts, and resources on all aspects of planning, documenting, and crafting the stories of your life.
AND support from our incredible community to ensure that your creativity reaches its full potential
Hey! I’m rukristin: Feminist Scrapbooker,
and I created Feminist Scrapbook School
Feminist Scrapbook School was created with learners in mind.
We have combined practical and theoretical learning for a unique experience only available here.
Our “Practice” here at Feminist Scrapbook School is called Daily Pages.
Daily Pages are a creative self-documenting habit started by rukristin in the summer of 2018. Daily Pages are about pulling a small amount of paper, thoughts, photos, words, or bits of life into a small notebook. They’re a creative habit for you to tell your stories.
Your pages can be as simple or elaborate as you want them to be. You can use whatever supplies you have on hand. There is no right or wrong way to approach this project. You don’t have to create pages daily (rukristin creates hers M-F). There are no specific supplies that you need. You can use what you’ve got on hand, whatever you’re loving the most right now, or anything else you want.
Our Daily Pages practice is about choosing what works for you and your life.
Inside FSS, there are multiple ways for you to interact with the Daily Pages Practice, including our fan-favorite Daily Pages Livestream, held every M-F at Noon ET (more details below). If that doesn’t work for your schedule, we’ve got a full library of recordings, classes, and other events to help you build your practice.
Our Theory here at Feminist Scrapbook School is found predominantly inside our live classes during the semester. Each semester we have two live classes, each with weekly live lessons and a classroom filled with resources, worksheets, and more.
2023 Spring Semester Classes are:
- 30 Days of Showing Up
- Book of Me: Find Your Voice
Classes are offered in various ways: live lessons, workbooks, audio lessons, video lessons, transcripts… so no matter which way you learn best, you can take advantage of our instruction. It’s important to us that you can show up in the way that works best for you and get what you need.
All Feminist Scrapbook School Students Also Get Access To:
Office hours sessions with rukristin are held regularly. You can bring whatever questions you’ve got on your mind and take turns sitting in the hot seat and getting advice or talking out a situation causing you some friction. Or you can sit in and listen to others get advice on their own creative issues.
Study Hall is quiet, scheduled time to work on projects together for comradery and accountability. We check in at the beginning of the session and mention what we’re working on, have a mid-session check-in point, and talk about our progress right before we finish. You are free to drop in & out of study hall sessions as you are able.
Library of Resources
Students have access to a Library that includes an incredible number (and growing) of resources for scrapbooking your stories. Including, but not limited to:
- Self-paced masterclasses
- Digital scrapbook files
- Printable scrapbook files
- Canva templates
- and more
Daily Pages Live
Daily Pages Live is our live Daily Pages session at Noon ET every Monday through Friday.
Join rukristin and watch her create today’s Daily Page live on camera, and then (optionally) share your own creation and check out what other students have created. This is one of our most loved activities and forms the basis for many members’ daily art habits.
We have been doing Daily Pages Live since the beginning of the pandemic (April 2020), and the consistent growth that students see just by showing up and scrapbooking inside these small notebooks is fantastic.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it live…we’ve got you covered!
Daily Pages Streaming is the name for our Daily Pages Live recordings. They are housed inside classrooms, tagged, and categorized so that you can watch the videos that are most relevant to what you want to create at any given time.
Book of Me — Your All About Me Scrapbook
Book of Me is our flagship all-about-me course where you create a one-of-a-kind scrapbook with the stories that are most important to you and the way that you want to tell them.
rukristin has been teaching this course for 5+ years, and it keeps getting better every time! Inside our Feminist Scrapbook School curriculum for 2023, we have two live Book of Me courses.
- Book of Me: Find Your Voice — March 1st through May 31st
- Mini-Book of Me: I’m Special – A Binder-Ring album — September 5th through 29th
Inside these Book of Me courses, there are weekly live lessons to discuss the week’s topic and answer any questions students might have about course materials.
Each topic includes journaling prompts, creative catalysts, and other resources to help you decide on the stories you want to document each week. The live lessons (or the video/audio recordings) will help you take the week’s prompt from something broad or abstract and make it relevant to your life right now.
Book of Me helps you to tell the stories that you want to tell in the ways that you want to tell them. Whether those are fun, surface-level stories, like what shows you’re watching and your favorite flavors of ice cream right now — or — more introspective stories, like what your most important values are or why you care deeply about a certain tradition.
Self-paced versions of previous Book of Me courses are also available if you’re looking for a different way of telling your stories this year.
